CLINTON & CLINTON WINS DEFENSE VERDICT IN TRIVIAL DEFECT CASE

David A. Clinton, Dana Ulise, and Amy Ifurung of Clinton & Clinton won a defense verdict for their client, a shopping mall, on February 25, 2015, at a trial in the San Diego Superior Court. The Plaintiff's original demand was $3,500,000. Prior to trial the Plaintiff made an Offer to Compromise for $750,000. Plaintiff alleged that she suffered from Central Cord Syndrome as the result of a trip and fall over a raised tree grate at a San Diego area shopping mall. Plaintiff also alleged that the sidewalk area where the tree was located was unsafe, as the tree grate did not stand out, and a bike rack was placed near the mall entrance. Clinton & Clinton successfully argued that the one-quarter height differential between the sidewalk and the raised tree grate was a trivial defect, and that the sidewalk area where the tree was located was maintained in a safe condition. After five days of trial, the jury returned a verdict within an hour and ten minutes for the defense, finding that the shopping mall was not negligent.
